Before coming along this article I had heard briefly of Killian Mansfield. I had heard about his battle with cancer. I had heard of his connections in the New York music scene and how he had recorded with Dr. John on his last album. I had even heard some of the music on his album that was released before he died in August. This article mentions all of that but continues to illustrate the community of both musicians and others who have been afflicted by cancer.
I would like to write more about this article but a good read says enough. Moreover a good listen to the interview is especially nice.
